Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research

Frontline Scientific Research Projects Advanced in JAPAN

We have published the booklet that introduces grant-supported projects newly selected in FY 2012, particularly relatively large-scale, highly appraised projects funded under the categories “Specially Promoted Research” and “Scientific Research (S)” and projects under “Scientific Research on Innovative Areas (Research in a Proposed Research Area)” aimed at pioneering new scientific frontiers by groups of researchers. (For detailed information of these categories, click "Types of Grants Programs".)
It is hoped that this booklet will help to enhance understanding of research activities in universities and other research institutions in Japan.
